A conversation between Juli Reinartz, Liz Rosenfeld, and Tanja Erhart in the frame of Juli’s research project “Choreographic strategies of disorientation” at the Theatre Academy, Uniarts Helsinki.
Welcome to this text which began as an email conversation in spring 2021 between three people – Liz Rosenfeld, Tanja Erhart, and Juli Reinartz. With this conversation, we continued our research on time and performance, which was moved from the studio to our home computers because of the covid pandemic. In the research, we had been thinking about how to spend time together when all our body times were different. We were interested in the concept of crip time not only as a rehearsal mode but as a concept that would make composed times of performances break apart. This brought us to the idea of speaking about times we can and times we cannot share.
